Chunjay, Verse 1:
When you walked into my life you walked into my soul
It’s like Cupid used a knife and he cut down to the bone
I knew my heart was home I didn’t watch the throne
In a single night this guy was simply overthrown
The only thing I knew, is you were 22
But your frame made me insane had you on interview
I can’t explain, I was done, some kinda voodoo
Call me Napoleon you are my Waterloo

Taylor Swiftin we were twinnin
Greater hearts desire I was spinnin
We chased the days at night, never did we fight
We tasted great together we were winnin (right?)
That was livin hugs were givin
Studied body & your soul like religion
It’s long division, precise incision
I can’t even define or christen
Made you my mission my ambition
Then one night hearts took flight locked our lips then
Pressed against them, with some friction
Kissing turned to fear of what was written
Indecision in description
I hit ignition and you killed the engine
Too late I’m smitten, hand in mitten
You’re a vampire and I got bitten

Chunjay, Verse 2:
When you walked into my soul you took a place inside my heart
You filled in the gaps from my healed up wounds and scars
In a single day you engaged my innermost parts
You upstaged any others, like rock stars smash guitars
Grabbed my car, hit the bars, collected fairy dust in jars
I can’t explain but I’d say we weren’t being very smart
But the pheromones in the air were way off of the charts
It revealed my love and we had a false start

You were my best friend and I loved you
Everything I said was all true
A flicker of light in my heart ignite
I stared into your eyes and I saw you invite
We drank cold brew since our debut
Smoked hookah and played games until 2
In the morning shooting pool, call it miscue
Juggalos don’t get magnets but we do
Gave you a tissue an arm to lean on
Kissed your forehead and told you to stand strong
If you’d review all the things we’d do
I think that you would find we were so in tune
But like deja vu, you withdrew
Turned my world upside down i bid you adieu
Gave ya over to God so I could bloom
Find some shelter from the hell of your monsoon

Chunjay, Outro:
She wounded by love, polluted by love
Diluted her love, and confuted my love
